In 1939, Carl Kiekhaefer was a young engineer fresh out of college. With financial help from his father, he bought a dying outboard motor manufacturing company in Cedarburg, Wisconsin.
He never intended to get into the outboard business. His plan was to make magnetic separators for the dairy industry. But included in the assets of the company were 300 defective outboards that had been rejected by a large mail order retailer.
Carl needed cash to keep his new business running, so with a small crew, he rebuilt the motors and sold them back to the mail order company. The engines performed so well that the buyer placed an order for more. Soon a second firm asked him to design and build an alternate-firing twin cylinder model.
The Kiekhaefer Corporation was in business and so Mercury was born.
